Description Ruud van der Pas 2022-08-11 11:35:10 UTC
Currently, the gprofng test suite runs for too long. This is not in line with other tests in binutils.

The set up, and perhaps also the information shown, should be made more flexible.

One proposal to make the duration and/or number of tests, user selectable. Or to introduce two different commands. The default and something like "check-expensive", or "check-extensive" for a more thorough series of tests.
